    Windows 10 microphone not detected

    Hi everybody,

    I updated my computer to Windows 10 Pro just few hours ago. I experienced some problems with the video drivers, but I solved them by updating the driver through nVidia GeForce Experience.

    Now I have problems with my audio driver (which I think it is VIA HD Audio). My computer does not recognize my external microphone, only the internal one (which is not of the best quality). I looked for the drivers in the ASUS website, but I have found only outdated drivers for Windows 8. Then I saw the "sticky thread" on tenforums in this section and I tried to download the driver, but I do not want to mess up everything else as the site says:

    Audio drivers available for download from the Realtek website are general drivers for our audio ICs, and may not offer the customizations made by your system/motherboard manufacturer. To be sure you obtain the full features/customizations provided in your original audio product, please download the latest drivers from your system/motherboard manufacturer's website.
    So I'd like to find a good driver for my own PC (which is an ASUS G75).
    In addition to it, it seems I have installed VIA HD Audio Control Panel, but I cannot access it because no window is shown when I start it.

    I've attached some screenshots which could be helpful.

    Perhaps a simple microphone solution; it worked for my HP laptop running Windows 10 [after tearing my hair out for hours and trying all the fixes i found on the internet, to no avail]:

    Click the [Start Button]
    Click on/select [All apps]
    Scroll down and click on [Settings]
    In upper right search box [i.e., Find a setting], type in "microphone"
    Click on/select [Microphone privacy settings]
    Turn on [Let apps use my microphone]

    VOILA! a working external mic

    Happy holidays ...
